‘We are still praying someone will come forward’ – sister of woman last seen in Bray nine years ago tomorrow
The sister of a young mother-of-one who vanished without a trace nine years ago tomorrow has made an emotional appeal for anyone who may know anything about her disappearance to come forward.
Esra Uyrun (35) left her home in Clondalkin in Dublin on the morning of 23 February 2011 to go to a local shop. She was expected to return shortly so her husband could take the car to work, but she was never seen again.
Her car was found abandoned in Bray and she was never seen again.
Her sister Berna Fidan spoke to WicklowNow.ie this week as she returned to Ireland on the ninth anniversary of her sister’s disappearance.
“Unfortunately there has been no real update [in the investigation] other than the gardai saying they are going to look at the case again from the beginning just in case they missed anything.
“Nine years on and we are still praying someone will come forward with information, I always say someone knows they just need to step forward and give us closure and peace of mind.
“It is Esra’s birthday on March 1 – yet another year without her is so very hard to cope with.”
There have been no confirmed sightings of Esra in Bray, though her car was found there and her phone last pinged on the far side of Bray Head.
Esra is described as 5’3” in height, with dark hair and green eyes. When last seen she was wearing black leggings, white Nike trainers, and a dark top.
